The best restaurants in Palma
Top restaurants in Mallorca
In Mallorca there are many great restaurants, cafeterias and bars. There are few places in the world where you can find such a great gastronomic variety in such a small area surrounded by water. Especially in the capital of Mallorca, Palma, there are dozens of top restaurants with different styles and price ranges.
But which restaurants are the best now?
Ombu Restaurant in Palma is our favorite if you are looking for an exquisite selection of tapas, with fresh ingredients and top quality. The dishes are prepared traditionally but with a refreshing accent of avant-garde cuisine. The restaurant is particularly specialized in tapas or smaller and light portions, which in combination with the ubication in the city center, are a perfect combination to stop and eat something while strolling through the city.
